good morning. i'm rebecca jarvis. >> i'm anthony mason. here a few stories we'll be looking at on cbs saturday. violent protests spread to two dozen countries. insurgents killed two marines. this as the bodies of four americans including the first u.s. ambassador killed in the line of duty in 33 years finally come home. >> the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictate orfor the tyranny of a mob. >> with just 52 days until the election president obama is leading mitt romney in the polls. and the number of americans who believe the country is going in the righting direction is at a
5:01 am
three year high. >> another royal scandal reminiscent of paparazzi chasing princess diana. topless pictures of kate middleton are released. this time the royals are fighting back. >> a new menu at mcdonald's. it will tell you how many calories are in your burgers and fries. all that and so much more on cbs "this morning," saturday, september 15, 2012. captioning funded by cbs good morning welcome to the weekend. . >> happy saturday. >> a lot of news this morning. we begin this morning with a story that has angered muse limgs arou -- muslims around the world. as demonstrations against the film continue to spread to
5:02 am
nearly two dozen countries. carter evans of our los angeles station is in cerritos, south of l.a. >> reporter: good morning. after being holed up at his home for nearly three days the man that the world has been waiting to see and hear from made a brief appearance early this morning. he's known to some as sam bacile and to others nakoula basseley nakoula and he left his home through a side yard gate surrounded by sheriff's deputies. >> do you have anything to say? >> reporter: the man you see under the hat and towel wearing a winter jacket in the l.a. summer heat may be responsible for sparking the flames of the deadly violence in the muslim world. he's trying to hide his face and believed to be the man responsible for creating a film called "innocence of muslims."
5:03 am
depicting muhammad in any form is considered an insult to islam. l.a. county sheriff spokesman said nakoula basseley nakoula is not under arrest. >> l.a. county sheriff's department tonight about midnight assisted federal probation officers in a voluntary interview. nobody is arrested. nobody is detained. nobody is in custody. >> he was escorted to the l.a. sheriff's department for a possible questioning on violation of his parole. he was convicted of bank fraud. he was not allowed to use or own device with internet devices. nakoula basseley nakoula of only allowed to use a computer for work. additional restricts prevented him from having anyone else get on the internet for him. so connecting the dots, if nakoula basseley nakoula is, indeed behind the film that sparked the deadly riots how did that film get on the internet?
5:04 am
now it's unclear what nakoula basseley nakoula does for a living but it is certain investigators will be asking that question. in the meantime authorities say nakoula basseley nakoula has left the area and he will not be returning home. to the best of our knowledge his family is still in this home behind me. >> thanks, carter. two u.s. marines are dead in afghanistan. insurgents attacked their base overnight in southern
5:05 am
province. it was a complex attack involving suicide vests, rocket attacks, small arms fired. the perimeter of the space was breached. uk forces and u.s. of the attac with smoke coming out of the base. of course quite some distance from where this occurred. he was safe in this particular incident but questions have been
5:06 am
asked about whether his presence is drawing insurgents attacks and there was considerable damage to the base. nato said they are still assessing how much damage was done and how this attack could possibly have happened at a base that was secure. >> absolutely. thank you. the bodies of the four am in the united states. u.s. marines saluted the coffins at andrews air base. those killed were ambassador chris ste vaccines, first ambassador killed in the line of duty in 33 years. navy s.e.a.l.s tyrone woods and glenn dougherty and sean smith. third coffins arrived on friday. at the memorial service both secretary of state hillary clinton and president obama spoke about putting an end to the violence. >> it is senseless, and it is
5:07 am
totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for a tyranny of a mob. >> we will bring to justice those who took them from us. we will stand fast against the violence on our diplomatic missions. we will continue to do everything in our power to protect americans serving overseas -- >> u.s. embassies around the world issued alerts advising americans to review their security measures. for more we turn to margaret brennan. what are american embassies doing at this point? >> they are pretty much on lock down. you have a real focus on
5:08 am
securing the perimeters of a lot of these compounds in yemen, libya, sudan. there had been people who were able to make it over the walls of these embassies. you do have marines that have been sent in to secure the perimeters. the security of the embassy, the physical space itself is provide by the host country. so there have been phone calls placed bisek clinton, president and vice president bid into urge these leaders to take this seriously. >> it sound like, margaret they are working the back channels. give us a sense for what secretary clinton is doing behind the scene? >> she has been in the white house, in the situation room about six times in the past three days. in constant contact via video conference, general dempsey with secretary panetta. in the case of tunisia where protesters made it inside the compound where security measures were put into place to secure the embassy staff, because of these concerns she picked up the
5:09 am
phone and she called the prime minister in tunisia and said what's going on because we are relying on your security, we need some back up and because of that personal plea there was a presidential guard sent in to help secure that area. >> both the president and secretary of state made emotional pleas yesterday. behind those remarks what message are they trying to send to these countries? >> it was very emotional for the secretary because she did send in the ambassador to libya, knowing that this was going to be a dangerous mission. so, you heard a little shake in the voice on that when she was delivering her speech. really the messaging that is consistent that the united states government has nothing to do with the production of this video. you'll hear that in every single speech she gives. she will continue to that it. it's also about appealing to leaders, in her remarks when those bodies came into andrews air force base she said in that speech, responsible people, responsible leaders get control of the situation.
5:10 am
so it's really a call to provide personal security and the host countries to take this seriously. >> margaret brennan thanks for being with us. >> the ongoing protests have been linked to an anti-islam film produced in the united states. president obama said the u.s. would quote stand fast against attacks on u.s. embassies around the world. but our next guest says that the situation is far more complex than just anger over the film. he says there are other factors playing into the violence, including forces trying to take advantage of the changing political face of the middle east. and to divide the move towards democracy. joining us is the public policy institute for american university of beirut in lebanon. senior fellow at harvard university and columnist for beirut "daily star" newspaper. great to have you with us. so what is this really about, if not about this video? >> the video is the spark that set people's emotions off and
5:11 am
took them to the streets and carrying out mostly peaceful demonstrations with some violent ones here or there. there's three or four things happening together. people should not try to find bun explanation for this. you have the movie triggering people's great anger about what's going on, and it's important for americans especially to understand that religion in islamic countries has a much, much bigger role in people's lives than it does in many western democracies. therefore an insult to the prophet is really huge and triggers these reactions. but you also have a small group, militant terrorists and they are the ones who attacked the cult in benghazi and they have been doing their deed for the last 10, 15 years since afghanistan, iraq and now around the world. so you got that movement going. you got mainstream islamic groups like muslim brotherhood
5:12 am
groups in egypt and other places who are competing for a new place in the political arena that's evolving in these countries that's democraticizing and old pent up grievances against the united states and other western countries. you have three or four things coming together where they are evolving political conditions and people are competing to get public opinions, so these things come together and that's how we should best understand this. >> is this a subset of the arab world or a broad base thing? >> what's interesting you have these demonstrations all over the islamic world, indonesia, nigeria, bangladesh. the movie triggers anger and rage for muslims across the islamic world. in the arab world you have a set of political grievances against the u.s. and europe and other places and these are coming into play now.
5:13 am
also deep competition going on now within political islam or islamized political groups. the muslim brotherhood is the mainstream group that's engaged in politics and has won elections in tunisia and other places. and then you have another group that's engaged in politics, peaceful politics and small little militant terrorists. so these three groups within the islamic political realm who
5:14 am
in cairo and around, much of the arab-muslim world. does it come down to the economy still in your view or does this change the scope of things and change the scope of the election to be more foreign affairs centered? >> right now the election is still about the economy. it's a pocketbook election but that's a question we don't know. there are eight weeks until election day. if the violence continues it will become more of an issue for voters. but as of now at this moment it's still about the economy.
5:15 am
>> why do you see the shift? the economy hasn't changed, you know. we saw the latest job numbers. they are still weak. why suddenly the shift? >> voters have had a summer long to analyze both sides of this. and the obama kpaun has tone a good job trying to make this a choice election. voters are open to the idea of firing president obama but they have not yet warmed to the idea of hiring governor romney. i think coming on the heels of the democratic national convention, there was an array of democrats making this argument including former president bill clinton helped on the economic side. the fundamentals of the economy has noting changed and there's still quite severe for an incumbent president. >> how much does this have to do with strengthening the base and strength coming from registered voters which president obama has an advantage. >> he has an advantage in registered voters. but this poll looks at likely voters and it's much closer. it's within the margin of error.
5:16 am
there is enthusiasm on both side but higher on the democratic base in terms of supporting president obama. there's still a good share of republicans who say they would rather defeat president obama than elect mitt romney but a vote is a vote. so the romney campaign has many openings here but they know they need to change the dynamic of this race so look for them to give an economic speech, a big thing to shake things up before the first important date on october 1st. >> even before these events in libya, obama had an advantage on foreign policy. this is likely to strengthen? >> it is. there's still so many unanswered questions about what happened in terms of was there an intelligence failure. in this poll only one data was capturing the violence in libya and egypt so that's a question we still don't know. foreign policy has been a strong point for this president. four in ten americans say he's stronger on foreign policy. it's an area that mitt romney
5:17 am
struggled with this week. we saw his campaign struggle to deal with this. we'll see how he reacts going forward. >> thanks. the federal reserve is start agnew round of stimulus spending, promising to pump multitudes, $85 billion a month into the economy for as long as it takes to improve the job market. it is a controversial move criticized by republicans who claim the fed is helping president obama before the election. joining us now is the fed chairman in the carter and reagan administration and professor at new york university stern school of business. his new book is out," volcker." this move taken this week by the fed unprecedented, untested, will it work? >> you say unprecedented, untested. >> it is open ended?
5:18 am
>> it is. maybe a little bit more open ended than before. i haven't analyzed it closely. by the nature of this particular economy, and nature of the recovery and the fact that it's all been wound up in over indebtedness and a major financial crisis by its nature this is not going to be a rapid recovery pinpoint has not bean rapid recovery and the federal reserve feels some pressure to pull out all the stops they can pull to keep the movement going and, you know, this is an unorthodox situation as well as unorthodox policy. >> mr. bernanke said he was doing it to fight unemployment which has been high. the romney campaign has blamed the obama administration for the state of the economy. do you think there is more the administration could have done to fight unemployment? >> oh, you know in retrospect you can go back why wasn't the stimulus bigger? at the time they thought they couldn't get it any bigger than
5:19 am
it was in terms of political and economic situation. >> do you think it should have been bigger? >> in the circumstances, and i was a little bit involved at the time, reasonable course of action. i still believe it was a reasonable course of action. >> in williams book he details multiple speeches that you've written over the years about policies that won't work if they are interpreted as inflationary and you saw in reaction to the fed's measures gold spiked, oil spiked and people are interpreting this inflationary. >> it won't be if affiliationary in the short run but there's a danger that you promote speculative activity of the kind that won't outlast and will be destabilizing. right now we don't have an inflation problem in the country. that will come later. >> you teach in your class that mr. volcker was the greatest fed chairman of all time.
5:20 am
what grade do you give ben bernanke? >> ben bernanke did a phenomenal job i think in 2008. he did exactly what a fed chairman is supposed to do when confronted by the potential for panic. the fed is the lender of last resort and it's got to throw money so that banks can get through this period of illiquidity. does the stimulus they just started create a rob. i agree we don't have an inflation right now. but the man to my right knows very well how hard it is to pull back when you have to. pulling back when you have to means raising interest rates and when he did it in the 1980s, he did it against the background of the great inflation of the 1970s. he'll tell you or he told me he did it because he knew he had public support.
5:21 am
>> right. >> even though congress would scream and yell he still had public support. >> it is a pleasure speaking with both of you gentlemen. the book by william silver, the man behind the book, paul volcker. thank you. >> thank you very much. pleasure being here. >> it's about 21 after the hour. here's lony quinn with our first check of the weather. >> good morning. i want to take a look at the whole country because really daylight today we've only got two organized systems out there. one of which you see right here. this cold front exiting the northeast. if we can zoom in tight it is fading away as we speak and two, three hours from now nothing for nobody as it pushes into the ocean. second system right here. it's in the mississippi valley. even portions of texas. what you're looking at is an upper level low system given an added punch by gulf moisture. so some rain, one to two inches

5:28 am
content. that's what turns me off. >> that's the stuff that matters. >> how much saturated fat. >> you figure calorie, i have like nutrition teacher say that's like putting gasoline in the car. you have to run on something. you need some calories. saturated fat. >> what you said is right. i was surprised by this, most restaurants who have done this say they have not seen a substantial change in behavior. >> which is a surprise. >> and because, you know, in some of those places when i get my coffee in the morning and i look at the lineup of coffee cakes and i see that 475 calorie number i go oh, maybe i won't do that. >> is that how you want to start your day >> you're already behind. >> we'll discuss this topic with a noted expert on the topic. that's coming up later in the program so stick around. >> sounds like fun to me. >> oh, it is. 3 ,,,,,,,,

million more than during the 2008 election. >> i'm anthony mason. >> i'm rebecca jarvis. >> the british royal family said
5:31 am
it will sue the magazine that publish ad topless kathryn. the pictures were taken last week while she and prince william were vacationing in france. an italian magazine said they too will publish the pictures. seth dome is traveling with prince william and with kate. >> reporter: this high-profile tour through southeast asia was designed to introduce the duke and duchess of cambridge. with all the photo opes, just a handful of unauthorized snapshots may be the most memorable images of this tour. those pictures of the topless kate sun bathing pool side were published yesterday by the french magazine "closer." a caption in french reads the photos that will go around the world. william and kate had been
5:32 am
vacations at this sprawling chateau on 640 acres. it's surrounded by lavender fields and woodlands. the couple had every expectation of privacy in this remote house a statement from saint james palace. it added the incident is reminiscent of the worse excesses of the press and pa a a decide during the life of diana. princess diana who was killed in a paris car crash had been hound by media ever since it was clear she married into the royal family. similarly the duchess has been at the center of intense public scrutiny and media focus. the french editor of "closer" magazine defended publishing the pictures saying the royal couple was visible from the street when they were photographed and the images in her view show a young, beautiful couple in love.
5:33 am
the magazine editor say they have additional more intimate photos they have not and will not publish. a spokesperson tells cbs news that william and kate are angered and feel a red line has been crossed. the couple spent the day in borneo touring rain forests and thinking about the short fallout from these tos. joining us now from london is royal expert and former newspaper editor neal john wallace. good morning. >> good morning. >> first of all the royal family said it will take legal action. do they have a case. can they sue the photographer or magazine? >> in france yes they can. france has some very strict privacy laws. the down side to it is that it frankly will be seen as a badge of honor by the magazine. >> what about in italy, neil, where you have this other magazine owned by the same
5:34 am
publisher that says it has even more pictures, 26 of them and they will be putting out a spread shortly. >> rebecca, i think that's always is going to happen. same group. what i don't believe is that there are more explicit pictures. i think that's just hype by the magazine. republication will be bad enough. 26 pages they plan? >> yes. >> 26. >> indeed. >> this was clearly an invasion of privacy here with probably an extremely long zoom lens. is this going to help their case? >> yes. i think frankly this is a completely open and shut case in france. but the average level of fines there is about $40,000. >> that's nothing. >> the numbers that they are selling and don't forget that these pictures now, because the size of this, are now going
5:35 am
worldwide. perhaps if not they wouldn't. there are already, i understand, two websites in the u.s. >> considering the end of princess diana which we know she was being chased by the paparazzi in the middle of the night what is the sense in london about how this -- whether this is appropriate, whether it's acceptable, and just being the past being repeated here. >> there's a strong negative reaction to this in britain, rebecca. it is simply not acceptable. the british press have unanimously agreed not to print these pictures. it has a very unpleasant feel about the very unpleasant era. >> finally, ultimately in france this is just not a big deal. topless sun bathing happens all the time. this is a misunderstanding between cultures?
5:36 am
>> no. the most ruthless in the world knew exactly what they were doing. >> even more so than the brits? >> yes we're amateurs. it was unfortunate, really, that the royals and particularly those around them didn't really, although they are a long way from road, technology as you zoom shots there show just how easy it is to zoom in and see intimate situations. >> neil john wallace thank you so much for being with us this morning. now here's lonnie quinn with another check of our weather. >> good morning. i want to start off this time with where i believe some of the prettiest weather in the country will be today and it is anywhere along any shore of our great lakes. the temperatures will be in the 60s and 70s. plenty of sunshine, low humidity, madison, chicago, buffalo being picture perfect. the satellite radar picture, this area i'm talking about,
5:37 am
prime stuff. however you go just to the west of it it looks like that clear air continues all the way out to the rocky mountains. this will prove to be a little bit of a problem for some people. here's what's going on. it will spark some thunderstorms but dry thunderstorms no water just thunder and lightning so a fire danger for idaho, montana, wyoming, south dakota, north dakota, even into portions of minnesota. be careful with an open flame in that portion of the country. that will do it for me. here's a closer look at your weather for the weekend. and for all my friends down in the florida keys a few showers but you'll get your fair share of sunshine as pell. up next a controversial movie needs extra security at its premier.

"the master" to scientology that has everyone talking including reports that at that church is angry about an unflattering portrayal of the religion. >> i'm a writer, doctor and philosopher. it talks about a writer that thoors book called "the cause" and develops a devoted following. earlier this month the movie's creator addressed the firestorm from scientologists and didn't dispute his movie is based on the founding of the church. >> a character i created on hubbard. a lot of similarities to the early days. >> according to the hollywood reporter the film's distributor

was forced to high extra security for the premier in new york after the church well-known for harassing its critics was calling, emailing and sending letters to the studio. anderson said the movie is really a character study between god and his wayward disciples played by joaquin phoenix. tom cruise has brought increased scrutiny and appeared in the movie "magnolia." >> showed him the film. >> joining us now is a leading expert on scientology. he's the other of "freedom of mind." good morning. >> good morning. >> you've seen the film. >> you fool me into watching it last night. >> is it about scientology? >> absolutely. a great movie, first of all. i didn't expect it to be so dramatically about the early days of hubbard, but it really
5:44 am
was. and if anything i kind of feel like they portrayed him in too flattering a light. >> in your view is it an accurate portrayal what scientology is about? >> many of the key beliefs are accurately portrayed. they were showing hypnotic techniques, training techniques. a lot of people don't know hubbard was a stage hypnotist before he wrote his book. i've bean therapist for many years helping people leave cuts like scientology. i myself was in the moonies. it's going raise a lot of awareness. >> watching a movie like this could be a recruiting tool for the church of scientology. >> absolutely not. especially in light of all the news about scientology, former top leaders speaking out,
5:45 am
especially the internet. my reports are that they are losing followers. >> should scientology be concerned about this film? >> absolutely, in my opinion. what i didn't like about the movie, if people were watching it, to have a window on the cult phenomenon is that the joaquin phoenix character was so messed up. of course the character in the movie couldn't cure him so that was an interesting point. but the problem that i have is that people who get into mind control cuts for the most part are not that messed up. recruiters of cuts don't want people that messed up, they want educated, intelligent people and they use deception to get people in to indoctrinate them, so to have a new identity. >> thanks so much for being with us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. >> up next a shocking new study on how love handles could be deadly. why they are more dangerous than

if you have love handles they can be deadly. a new study suggests normal weight people who have excess fat around their stomach have a higher risk of dying than obese people and have a greater risk of dying from heart disease than people with a normal hip to waist ratio. good morning, doctor. thanks for being with us, i think. how is this possible that if you got a normal waist basically you're at a higher risk of dying. >> people who are normal weight but have put on fat around here, that tells us that they are not storing fat normally where it should be. we should be storing fat in fat cells evenly distributed around the body. when you can't do that and it start building up here, it says your fat is dysfunctional, it's building up here and it's
